Interview with Lois Gray

Lois GrayIn February 2006, we met with Lois Gray in ILR's New York City office to capture on tape the wisdom and experience Lois acquired over the span of her 60 years of service and leadership to ILR. Lois was the first employee of ILR Extension, signing on as director of our Buffalo, New York, office in 1946. Her insights and wealth of experience are a fitting kick-off to ILR's celebration of its outreach activities.
